That last 18 months have been a complete whirlwind in my world as my Hipster Haberdasher etsy store took off so quickly I didn't have time to do much but sew and develop ways to streamline the assembly process in order to keep up. I never anticipated having my focus changed so quickly from my book and patterns to more of a marketing and developement sort of direction. Needless to say, it's been pretty exhausting and exhilirating at the same time. It took us from fighting foreclosure to actually buying a new car this past spring. We never imagined that happening.
(I hate having a picture-less post so here is a pic of my best seller)
Right now I'm enjoying the lull between the back to school shoppers and the Christmas rush (coming next week I'm guessing). It's been great and I've been able to clean and bake and spend more time actually interracting with my kids. It's been blissful. It's given my brain room to think.
And I think I'm done with the idea of producing more paper patterns. I'm very proud of the work I did when I got those designed and produced and I really thought, at the time, it would turn into something big for me. It really didn't. But it got me pointed in a direction and I believe it's a big link in the chain of life events that brought me to where I am.
So I'm heading in a new direction. I'm not really sharing too many details right now but my hope is it will be successful not just for me and my family but will bring opportunities for so many (mostly) women who want, or need, to bring in some money but want to be home. Oh, and it involves fabric (what else is there?).
Anyway, I have lots more to share but right now I'm just going to clean out the rest of my paper patterns and offer them at rock bottom prices to anyone. I am completely out of the Sunny Scallop Dress pattern (still available in pdf format though) but I have a good amount of my Edith Twirl Skirt (where it all began), Evelyn Apron Skirt, and Shopgirl (and boy!) Apron pattern.
(another picture to keep it from tipping the word-to-picture ratio too much)
I'm selling them for 6.00 each which is the wholesale price. They are 5.00 each when bought in groups of 10 (they have to be 10 of the same pattern). If you want to buy a lot more I'm sure we can work out a great price. They are all in my Fabritopia etsy shop.
These are perfect for classes at shops (or home) and you are free to re-sell them. The full retail price is 12.00 but can sell them at whatever price you're happy with.
I'm planning on using any money this makes to start my new endeavor. Back soon!
